The Lee County school district may have been one of the last to satisfy the courts, but schools in Punta Gorda and Sanibel Island were among the first in Florida to integrate their students. Some 50 years later, several Southwest Florida residents share their memories of being the first African Americans to brave one of the most dramatic social experiments of the 20th century.

Mark your calendar for Mar. 11 at 1pm when a Gulf Coast LIVE radio segment will feature a panel discussion from the FGCU premiere of Reading, Writing & Civil Rights.
